it was amazing
bookshelves: anthro

i read this right before i read "how soccer explains the world: an unlikely theory on globalization" and it all made sense to me ... the ties between a group struggling to find their voice and identity in the ghettos of france, a country that continues to oppress them though no longer under the blatant flag of colonialism, and with this struggle comes the tightening of gender roles because that is something that is easy to control. great read, smart ideas, as a privileged female-bodied college student, it really made me see things differently.
